Fabric Flower Bridal Bouquet

 Today was the beginning of the brides bouquet.
I sent over all my scrap fabrics to Action Hero's (aka the Bride's) house.

Running with scissors just like I taught her,

she cut them up into circles.

 Then carefully burnt around all the edges.

 She was a very good girl and didn't do this!

Today my bag of petals arrived.

 I started stacking and stitching.

 And stitching and stacking more.

  I'm not going to worry about the messy stitching on the back
I'll figure out how to cover it all up when I add the stems.

Tomorrow I will be auditioning Mom...I need the brooches and buttons now.
